Introduction: Post-stroke depression occurs in a context of stroke characterized by sadness, loss of interest, feelings of guilt, loss of appetite, a feeling of tiredness, and a lack of concentration. Material and Methods: We conducted a descriptive cross-sectional study from January 1, 2013 to September 30, 2016. For the diagnosis of post-stroke depression, neuropsychological tests (DSM-IV and MADRS) were used. The collection approach was a maintenance survey followed by an examination. Results: From 153 stroke patients, 48.4% (n = 74) had post-stroke depression. Depressed mood was noted in 50.3% and 43.8% had a marked decrease in interest. 67.9% of these patients had a primary level of education. Widows had 4.2 times the risk of post-stroke depression, and married and retired patients were 3 times more likely than public servants. The occurrence of post-stroke depression was significantly related to the presence of motor deficit in our patients, p < 0.0001. Conclusion: These results suggest that the risk of developing depression after stroke increases with the motor deficit. The DSM-IV and MADRS scores remain neuropsychological examinations of choice for the diagnostic approach.

Abstract: MPNST is a very uncommon malignant type of neoplasm. It is often associated with neurofibromatosis type 1 (von Recklinghausen disease). It involves large anatomical regions, and thus takes on varied clinical presentations. However, bone location of MPNST, particularly in the spinal canal has been poorly described in the literature. We hereby report the case of a 29-year old young man with MPNST in the spinal canal. He presented a slow spinal cord compression confirmed by spinal MRI. MPNST was revealed through histologic and immune histochemical features after tumor resection.
Quality Issues in Higher Education: A Multicriteria Framework of Satisfaction Measures  [PDF]

Creative Education (CE) , 2011, DOI: 10.4236/ce.2011.23042
Abstract: Higher education attributes significant interest to student satisfaction because of its potential impact on the quality dimensions of the offered services. This is illustrated from the large number of studies that have shown a moderate to strong relationship between these two concepts. This paper provides a detailed analysis of a student satisfaction survey conducted at the Health Care Management Department of the Technological Education Institute of Athens. The analysis was based on a multi-criteria preference disaggregation method (MUSA). Results are focused on the evaluation of student choices, while significant findings of the applied methodology constitute the determination of strong and weak points of the educational component’s preferences that form important suggestions for the improvement of the satisfaction level and the quality characteristics of the correspondent services.
A Fourth Order Improved Numerical Scheme for the Generalized Burgers—Huxley Equation  [PDF]
A. G. Bratsos
American Journal of Computational Mathematics (AJCM) , 2011, DOI: 10.4236/ajcm.2011.13017
Abstract: A fourth order finite-difference scheme in a two-time level recurrence relation is proposed for the numerical solution of the generalized Burgers--Huxley equation. The resulting nonlinear system, which is analysed for stability, is solved using an improved predictor-corrector method. The efficiency of the proposed method is tested to the kink wave using both appropriate boundary values and conditions. The results arising from the experiments are compared with the relevant ones known in the available bibliography.
External Magnetic Field Effects on the Rayleigh-Taylor Instability in an Inhomogeneous Rotating Quantum Plasma  [PDF]

Journal of Modern Physics (JMP) , 2012, DOI: 10.4236/jmp.2012.311224
Abstract: The effects of external magnetic field effects on the Rayleigh-Taylor instability in an inhomogeneous stratified quantum plasma rotating uniformly are investigated. The external magnetic field is considered in both horizontal and vertical direction. The linear growth rate is derived for the case where a plasma with exponential density distribution is confined between two rigid planes at z=0 and z=h, by solving the linear QMHD equations into normal mode. Some special cases are particularized to explain the roles that play the variables of the problem. The results show that, the presence of both external horizontal and vertical magnetic field beside the quantum effect will bring about more stability on the growth rate of unstable configuration. The maximum stability will happen in the case of wave number parallels to or in the same direction of external horizontal magnetic field.

Theoretical Economics Letters (TEL) , 2012, DOI: 10.4236/tel.2012.25087
Abstract: This note analyzes the equilibrium dynamics in the neoclassical growth model with habit-forming preferences and elastic labor supply. Habits enter into utility in a multiplicative way. The specification of the habit formation process comprises the particular cases of internal and external habits. Existence, uniqueness and saddle-path stability of the steady state are proved analytically.

The Rayleigh-Taylor instability in stratified plasma has been investigated in the presence of combined effect of horizontal and vertical magnetic field. The linear growth rate has been derived for the case where plasma with exponential density distribution is confined between two rigid planes by solving the linear MHD equations into normal mode. Some special cases have been particularized to explain the roles the variables of the problem play; numerical solutions have been made and some stability diagrams are plotted and discussed. The results show that, the growth rate depends on the horizontal and vertical components of magnetic field and also depends on the parameter λ*=λLD  (λ is constant and LD is the density-scale length). The maximum instability happens at λ*=-0.5 and to get more stability model we select λ* such that it is different than λ*=-0.5. The vertical magnetic field component have a greater effect than the horizontal magnetic field component in the case of large wavelength, while in the case of short wavelength, the horizontal magnetic field components have greater effect than the vertical magnetic field component.

Abstract: Nanoscale superlattice has been investigated theoretically. It has been shown that the deformation effects on the energy spectrum of nanoscale superlattice by changing the interatomic distances as well as varying the width and height of the potential barrier. The potential deformation has been estimated. It has been shown that for different edges of forbidden bands the deformation potential has different values. It has been also analyzed the dependence of the effective mass on energy. It has been determined that the effective mass crosses periodically the zero mark. It has been concluded that this phenomena contributes to the periodic change of the oscillation frequency de Haas-van Alphen effect.

High-density oliveculture system needs irrigation and introduces new cultivars in new environments. So the evaluation of varietal ecophysiological response to irrigation is a crucial topic. For this reason it was planned a research on two cultivars, Coratina and Arbequina, trained according to high-density system. In 2009 the irrigation was conducted according to the conventional management by applying an irrigation frequency of 4 days. The leaf water potentials reached values similar to the limits reported for the recovery within 48 hours. However, plants showed a leaf water status and gas exchange recovery just after 24 hours from watering. The results highlighted some varietal differences: Arbequina showed a better response to irrigation, while Coratina performed a higher water use efficiency by a lower leaf transpiration.

Escherichia coli RecA has been considered traditionally a cellular protein with multiple vital functions working to ensure the maintenance of integrity of genome in each individual bacterial cell as well as promoting swarming migration in collectivity. On the contrary, recently it has been described that RecA promotes cellular apoptotic-like death (ALD), a pathway of programmed cellular death (PCD). In fact, RecA has been dubbed as the major apoptotic executor in E. coli. From these studies, RecA emerges as a prototypical Gin/Gan protein that despite of their intrinsic vital and lethal anfi-funcionality becomes in a WISE factor: a Worker to Integrate Survival and Evolution in E. coli evolving populations living in community. Here, I provide a review of recent experimental and conceptual advances trying to understand these RecA’s antagonistic roles in appearance contradictory under a unified biological vision.
